(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For:

z(x,y)=(x^2)y-3y

Find [tex]\Delta[/tex]z and dz when x=4, y=3, [tex]\Delta[/tex]x=-0.01, [tex]\Delta[/tex]y=0.02

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I got the partial derivatives:

df/dx=2xy, and df/dy=x^2-3

and solved dz=0.02

However, I don't know how to find [tex]\Delta[/tex]z
